Lakefront Problems

Can anyone confirm?
  • Once again, tonite saw over a THOUSAND gang bangers at North Ave beach causing disruption. Car 6 on scene in the middle of it, calling for cars.Groups of 50-100 bangers fighting. Yuppies running from the beach. Dugan called for cars on citywide to respond to the scene. And its only Monday night. The next accountability meeting for Bt. 1800 aint gonna be pretty. Lakefront is gone, say bye bye.
We've been seeing comments about the downtown wildings every weekend lately. Just two weeks ago, the Districts were picking up multiple armed and strong armed robbery offenders from the El stops. There was another under-publicized incident involving two young ladies beaten with a board.

How long can Shortshanks and J-Fled keep a lid on things?

Ha! And I just heard on the radio that tourism is expected to be "up" here in Chicago, with people making Millennium Park a big destination for their travel. Good luck with that.....

Anyone who has worked on the West or Southside can see it. Streets and sidewalks both pretty much empty during the daytime, does matter what day compared to years ago. Then when the parks close and especially when the bars close it is like it used to be. Where do they go? Downtown. They know where police are.

the lakefront is bordered by numerous high rise, residential buildings.

all with ample window square footage, for that beautiful view.

a few video cameras, with telephoto lenses, would capture these activities nicely.

then, www.youtube.com ......

Wait until some poor tourist gets beaten to a pulp and his wife gets raped, then theassholeonthefifthfloor would blame the cops like he always does.

You can't properly police this city being 1,000+ personnel short.

Even NYC has kept up with police retirements and their Mayor is just as big a jag as ours is.

And, of course, Frank and Fran will refuse to report on this.

I work in 001 and armed/strong armed robberies are a nightly occurrence. When the Ickes were up it was a favorite game of the youth to attack the elderly Asian people living across the street in the Hilliard Homes. They didn't rob them most of the time, just knock them down and punch them. Then they would run off laughing back to the Ickes. The cabbie who got shot in the head and robbed last week was the victim of a citizen from the Cabrini Green row houses. We share the zone with 018 and in the summer time we hear the chaos that is happening nightly at North Ave Beach. We have 12th St. beach in 001 which is a favorite hangout for Latin Kings. And then we have the Taste which is always ghetto-tabulous. Navy Pier is no longer safe to go to in the evening in summer times. Basically, anything that is free is up for grabs. State Street and Michigan Ave. have roaming groups of thugs who come down to rob and shoplift. Afterward they always run for the train. They love to get in fights on the El platforms while they are waiting for their train. And lets not forget the homeless mental you encounter every 5 feet. But how about those flower pots? Aren't they nice?

Yes, i can attest to these problems. There are loads, and i mean loads of gangbanger around the north ave beach area. It's really getting bad. It has a "taste of chicago feel" to it. Every kind of shit head you could imagine is now making their way to that area when it's hot out. 018 really has to step it up b/c that area is getting really bad in a hurry.

Person shot in 23rd dist. at 140 W. Fullerton tonight. Witness stated that a group of black and latino men approached and shot victim. R/O toured lake front from North Ave. to Lawrence and there had to be 500-600 M/1s and F/1s scattered up and down LSD jogging path and lake front. Everytime a cop car would get to them they would all run in different directions. This went on for two and a half hours before we just gave up and said fuck it , Destroy the city you animals!!

Got off LSD at Fullerton @0025. Tons of gangbangers still streaming off the bike path. Bunch of crime scene tape and squad cars parked all over. I'm guessing someone got shot. Only suprising thing is they didn't have all the gangbangers cleared out STILL at 0025.

The answer to all this mayhem is obvious... NO MANPOWER!!!!

12th St beach is going to the dogs, too. But they still have all 99 beat cars on 3rd watch in 001 and usually down 1 or 2 primary beat cars and the early wagon. The 3rd watch is on life support, there's simply nobody to man the cars. I wonder if those rich folks who pay the highest taxes in the South Loop realize how little police protection they're getting for their money? Probably not, or there'd be hell to pay at those beat meetings where all they complain about is dog-walkers who don't carry pooper scoopers. As we all know, ignorance is bliss. By comparison, Pookie on the west side gets waaay more police protection and pays ZERO tax money for it!

This is all shortshank's fault for cutting off the hiring of more police officers. His priority is to build more empty buildings and provide contracts to his construction company friends.

Oh well, these are the Dumb-o-crats you idiots keep voting for again and again.

Chicago has become a scary place. The most important thing observed in these goofs causing havoc is that they aren't paying taxes. They are not property owners. They are getting handouts from the federal government in ways of Link, etc. And all the police resources are used on these deviants.

This store has the bangers frequenting it selling their dope inside away from police most of the time. But hide in the shadows and you'll be surprised to see narcotic transactions happening off the corner with the vehicles driving up for a dime bag. 004th District has this problem because most policing is done on the north end where a lot more action is. But, this spot is getting out of hand. Again it is the teen gangbangers causing the problems. Just like on the lakefront. Where were the parents influence on these kids behavior? Chicago is suffering at the hands of teen punks.

But gang bangers are people too! Shortshanks caters to all the garbage, so he should just fence off a section of the beach for gang bangers where they could congregate and fight for turf. Let them kill each other off. All this shit is not accidental. It's organized chaos!

Gotta love it.The chickens come home to roost. The citzenry get the policing they deserve.Things are on a downhill slide and its picking up speed. No support for law enforcement leads to a total lack of respect and lack of fear of the police and this is what you end up with. The way to stop this wilding is before it gets started but you know they have rights so our hands are tied.I hope someone has video of this and puts it on You Tube for the world to see. I would have loved to see the yuppies

Now the lake front libtards can enjoy the real chitroit.

To all the libtards out there, don't start screaming at the police. Begin by telling your alderthief you are tired of the savages, then move up to daley cime inc. CEO richard m.

The police are understaffed, officers are being moved from the tax paying communities to police the non-tax paying communities. It's time to demand the services yoh pay for.

Is this the change you were looking for?

The only ones out for Burge's head are the left wing professors, media talking head wanna-bees and the criminal element and their families.

Your average tax-paying citizens have no problems with Burge's actions. No average citizens are in fear of Burge or the Police. It's the average citizens that needs to say 'stop the witch hunt for Burge. Stop waisting our tax dollars on this!'

The fights spilled north to Fullerton in 023 where a MLD/LK gang fight resulted in a person being shot. Last word on the victim, in surgery at Northwestern, was that he was critical. Offenders fled into the park area - a whole lot of them. Tact Lt in 023 called for helicopter to help search the park area from Fullerton to Diversey but it wasn't working as usual. Great response by 023 beat cars who just about on-viewed the shooting as well as assist from 018and 019. The original conflict appears tohave started at North Ave.

I can confirm, not a cop but a guy in the neighborhood who listens on a scanner. (Much respect for you the junk you guys deal with and how much your hands are tied.) I listened as they shut down the North Ave. exit ramp and called for closing of the beach. I found it interesting when dispatch was asked to notify the neighboring districts that they were herding people the their way, it was basically said, will deal with any issues when it happens no time for that right now. Then of course the resulting backlog of calls that built up while this was going on. Dispatch rattled of a list that seemed to go on forever up for grabs.

The downtown "wildings" are out of control. I lived downtown for 15yrs and have never seen it this bad. Last year groups of black youths ran around beating people up. I thought with the tearing down of the projects it would improve the quality of life downtown, it seems to have gotten worse.

Thought I had seen it all. With what I saw last night at North Ave and what I saw before that at promontary point was just the scum of the earth coming out to lake. So long lakefront is true.

I used to do a lot of police work by arresting hundreds of gangbangers every year. I recieved a few CR#s (less than 20 in a five year period). I was placed on behavior intervention and had to suffer the consequences. FOP did crap when after a year and a half the city said they made a mistake. FOP did NOTHING! Guess how many arrests I get every year now? I'll tell you what DALEY. Give me one of those merit promotions that the lazy slugs get who are politically connected and I might go back to doing some police work. Otherwise, there are approximately 600 cops out there in the same situation who really slowed down. They where the ones doing 90% of the work. You can check and find out. Prove me wrong. By the way, don't do a Cozzi on us and release him.

I ride my bicycle all over Chicago, about 4,000 miles a year (I live in Rogers Park, the girlfriend in Evergreen Park, you do the math and the map). I would not ride on the lakefront path anytime except weekday mornings/afternoons for love or money. It's safer at 59th and California than it is on that path. Sunday, though, I had to escort some students northwards from downtown, and they wanted to take the path. It was a slalom clusterf&ck of idiots and gangbangers. What will set this off? Some yuppie cyclist going very fast will plow into some guys and girls who are blocking the path, and they will beat him to death with his own bike lock for disrespecting their right to walk eight abreast.

Which, of course, will mean more resources pulled from where they are needed so that our Nobel Prize winner and his wonderful and amazing family will see nothing that might upset them.

Who knows? Maybe he'll come out and apologize for America to some gangbangers. He does it enough with third world thugs.

How about some history from which to learn? Until the arrival of Joe the Boss 018 had a detail on the beach from Fullerton to Ohio. They arrived in May and set the tone for the remainder of the summer, i.e., no drinking, no doping, no gangbanging, and the 11PM curfew was enforced. For unexplained reasons the detail was removed by JTB. The responsibility fell to an already over taxed Summer Moblie. The 11PM curfew was still maintained. When Summer Mobile was dissolved, the lake front was left to the beat car. Due to the excessive burdens on the beat car, this hasn't worked.

Now, here is the lesson. If the police are removed from an area, that's the area where the lawbreakers will break the law.

You are truly stupid...WHY would you think the election of a black man to that office would change race relations?

I was jogging along the lake Sunday afternoon and was pretty surprised at the number of gang-looking Black and Mexican kids between North Avenue beach and Fullerton. It just didn't feel right and I kind of thought to myself I really hadn't seen that crowd around there before. I don't bat an eye anyone of any skin color that is there enjoying the beach and relaxing, but there were just a ton of kids who were obviously not there for the beach.

I didn't see any fights but figured there were gangs around there judging by the sheer number of some of the groups, their attire, etc.

Anyone ever read the "Blog 501"?

Here's another winner:

I tried using the homan square gym as I have for the past several years. Unfortunately this time I was not able to get a locker to secure my belongings. There are guest lockers that always are taken and only a couple of people are using the gym. I talked to other officers who went to the gym and decided never to return because they could not get a locker. Can you contact the commander of OCD and have him take care of this issue.

Posted on May 22, 2010 at 08:10 AM CDT #

Chief Brown has higher priorties than checking gym lockers. Here's an idea - go to a private gym. Chicago has quite a few, probably very close to your home. JW

WTF kind of blow-off, asinine, sarcastic response is this? Why dont you just say "I dont give a fuck about your police facilities, and therefore I really dont give a fuck about you"?

While listening to Zone 4 on the scanner (There's an app for that) last night I wondered....then realized how short of man power the CPD really is.

A little after 11 pm gang fire @ Stockton and Fullerton. Lots of cars respond, draining the rest of 18. While all the cars are up on Fullerton, the dispatcher reels off a list of calls....5 or 6 different calls....she sounded like she was calling traffic on 780...but there is no one to respond. Slowly but surely cars clear from Fullerton, but the damage was done. It's just like an accident on the expressway....the accident may be cleaned up....but it takes the rest of the night to get back to business as usual.

And this was only a Monday night. Give Zone 4 a listen and the weekends...it's nuts.

Observations:

NEED MORE COPS!

CPD Radio equipment is terrible: Coppers from 18 chasing bad guys and can't talk to the coppers in 23 chasing the same bad guys. Chase starts and coppers are calling in over each other...what happens when something REALLY big happens. Radios will be completely useless.

Other Zone 4 observations:

Why do people call the police because the bar they live next to has "loud music"? Odds are the bar was there when you moved in.

How about a curfew for public housing. 11:30 lock the doors.

Give taxi cab drivers taser. Then when someone tries to dash off on a fare, cabbie tasers offender, puts offender in trunk, drops offender off at station....and put an ATM in the station for the offender and pay the cabbie....way too many "theft of services" calls...same for bartenders...guy dashes on his bill for $20 martinis zap the goof.

"I lived in Hyde Park for 15 years not a democrat probably the only republican living in Hyde Park. I was riding my bike last night and I saw what happened at North Ave. Having been a lifeguard for the city on the lakefront through high school and college, I have lived on the lake front almost all of my adult life. Thought I had seen it all. With what I saw last night at North Ave and what I saw before that at promontary point was just the scum of the earth coming out to lake. So long lakefront is true. Never I have felt so unsafe. Time to move out of Chicago. This is going to be a crazy summer."

5/25/2010 09:12:00 AM

The s__t out at the Point began with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Anyone who lived in Hyde Park at that time will remember how the Point changed from a place where a small group of friends could sit and quietly barbecue a hot dog (they had little city-owned concrete barbecue things, and nobody smashed them) even after dark, and walk home in safety, to a complete no-go zone.

Remember when the drumming started? Hundreds of characters with every variety of African drum you can imagine -- some really huge ones -- dragged these things to the Point every night, set up, and proceeded to keep everyone in the Sherry, other buildings facing east across the park, etc. awake all night every night, beating and drinking and screaming and using and selling drugs. The walls of the LSD underpass became covered with filthy graffitti, the bronze statue of the little deer at the drinking fountain was vandalized.

Constant complaints in the Hyde Park Herald, to the alderman, etc. I grew used to seeing a dozen police cars four-deep and in blue helmets tearing east on 55th Street towards another Point disorder.

Pieere De Vise, an "urbanologist" with the University of Chicago, maintained that white people should not panic and move away, but should stay to ensure a racial balance in the area.

Then his wife was attacked. He shut up and quietly "folded his tent and stole away into the night," to advocate his theories from a safer location.

...and now Mayor Daley has indeed lost control of his high-rent core central district.

Throw in a Cubs game or the general busy bar nights it begins to tie up alot of cars. Throw in a bad night in Uptown and its really fucked.

"An anonymous posting on the Second City Cop blog indicated there was widespread gang activity at the North Avenue Beach Monday night. It was not known Tuesday morning whether the Fullerton Drive shooting was related in any way to activity at the beach".


This is a really good sign that something is going on in the city that hasn't gone on in a very long time. The bangers are taking to the lake front. Damn... And J-Fled is out of site.

I think it is fantastic that SCC is fast becoming the de-facto source for immediate and true information concerning the CPD and crime conditions. The media all know what bullshit gets spewed from the trolls down at News Affairs.

Keep it up SCC and since the media are on to you and use this as a source, please endeavor to keep topics as factual as possible, keeps your cred up, you know.

"1000 gangbangers at North Avenue Beach"

What kind of manpower would it take to handle a problem of that size?

I mean, even IF we had it, which we don't.....

It will be interesting to see this summer when the Lake Shore Drive crowd coming out of their multi-million dollar condos (that are multi-million dollar because of the lake front) and they can't go on the beach.

In this bizarro world the underclass has become the ruling class.

I am being reasonable, doing nothing that can possibly get me in trouble. That's reasonable I feel. soon perhaps Tom Dart will close another Division of Cook County Jail. That is reasonable too.

Let jody weis get out there in a beat or tact car himself and show us how to do it. That is reasonable.

Ever see that comic book movie "The Watchmen"? Not a bad movie but not great. There was a line in that flick that the guy with the mask that changed all the time had. It went like this...

"There will come a time when they will scream 'help us' and we will whisper 'no' ".

For years you filmed us, waiting for us to slip up, when we were trying to protect you. For years you held up lawful and in policy use of force high and touted it as "police brutality". For years you would interfere and obstruct us when you had no idea whatsoever what our job, or the law, was. For years you took the side of the criminal and assumed that they were right and we were wrong without even bothering to look at what was happening with even the smallest amount of common sense. In short, for years you demanded from your false moral high ground that we not do our jobs. You thought that would have no effect? What did you expect?

So now you are screaming "help us?". Well sir, we are whispering "no".

Me and mine? We are WELL protected. Believe that sir. After all these years and all your pompus false morality? After all this time of you embracing what is quite literally evil while you try to destroy my brothers, sisters, and I for trying to protect you? You pitiful, ungrateful coniving and cowardly excuse for a man. Quite frankly fuck you and yours. This is what you wanted so it is what you got.

The toilet of society, caked solid with congealed, fermented shit is not only split from top to bottom but is over-flowing as the yuppies tip-toe, dance and cry with shit in their blahniks & birkenstocks yelling for the Police to "do something."

Sorry... The Police are your enemies and the mouth-breathers who are on a binge of mopery, thuggery and lake front bum-fuckery are your friends. Didn't Crime King Shortshanks have the media arm of Daley Inc. make that clear?

Still feeling safe and smug?

Is that $10k to $20k+ in property tax you're paying going to insulate you from this shit?

There is NO-FUCKING-WHERE in this city that this shit isn't going to spill over into this summer.

The National Guard? Bridge is out, they ain't comin'.

"The Police need to get in their face..."

Sorry, not likely and stop your bullshit about "Police act like they're afraid." We're not afraid of these dogs but we're NOT STUPID either. The first well deserved slap, smack, size 12 steel-toed boot in the ass or "verbal reprimand" will be captured by a lib do-gooder/police hater and will go viral on youtube and msm...

J-fled will have the Copper stripped, c/r'd, fired, charged, jailed, 1983'd, federally tried & imprisoned before the end of the Copper's tour of duty that day!

The last few years has been a shit-talkers holiday as far as CPD goes.

"Fuck the Cops and their contract, what makes them think they deserve a pension, we're eating our trust funds & 401K's so no pension or benefits for them either, fire 'em all and hire us, being a cop is easy, we'll work for half and no benefits..."

...Shortshanks wiggles his toes, farts loudly and laughs as he knows that he's planted flowers and sprinkled bullshit in the eyes of the public to make enemies of the Police to deflect attention from his malfeasance and it worked like a charm!

Enjoy the fluffy, friendly, cuddly, customer service, hurt no one's feelings Police.

I'm a manager in the private sector. I read the blog by the officer requesting that management intercede regarding the lack of lockers with working locks in the police gym. If the response by the superintendant is an actual response and not a joke, it's probably the best example of unacceptable behavior by a manager I've ever seen. I thought the overwhelming negativity toward him was due to his Federal background. I can now see that there is a very real basis for it.

Here's another winner:

I tried using the homan square gym as I have for the past several years. Unfortunately this time I was not able to get a locker to secure my belongings. There are guest lockers that always are taken and only a couple of people are using the gym. I talked to other officers who went to the gym and decided never to return because they could not get a locker. Can you contact the commander of OCD and have him take care of this issue.

Posted on May 22, 2010 at 08:10 AM CDT #

Superintendent's Response
Chief Brown has higher priorties than checking gym lockers. Here's an idea - go to a private gym. Chicago has quite a few, probably very close to your home. JW

WTF kind of blow-off, asinine, sarcastic response is this? Why dont you just say "I dont give a fuck about your police facilities, and therefore I really dont give a fuck about you"?

Why is police understaffed?

According to city budget, Chicago has a budget spending of $6.3B for 2010, and 29.9% goes to public safety.

So, city spends about $2B on public safety. For a city with population of 3M, that's $700 per person. Or in terms of police force of 10,000 officers, that's wobbling $200,000 per officer.

Something doesn't make sense here. Are we having too much waste? Who wants to shed some light into this?

RE: The question of where the parents' influence is on teen gangbangers... Where do you think these "kids" got the idea to get involved with the gang to begin with?! Most of the "kids" I teach are only about 12-15 years younger than their tatted up, gang-color-wearing, drug dealing, air wasting, piece of trash parents. When the generation gap shrinks to the point where its roughly only about 13.5 years on average, you've got problems... I've seen babies tatted up before they're 6 months old so they're marked as gang property... Sooo... the long-winded answer shortened is that the majority of these "kids" ARE being influenced by their parents! It just isn't in the way you'd like to see.

The public didn't care so in response the Police care quite a bit less about anything else other than self preservation, returning home in one piece.
